But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Luke 2:10, 11
My Hubby was the hero of the hour.... he made the handles to the lanterns for me.
Being the Cowboy that he is, he used electric fence wire. Any heavy duty wire will do; check "Lowes", or Farm and Ranch Supply or any hardware store. He cut 42 inches in length for each lantern.
He wrapped it around the glass twice.
Which was not necessarily an easy job... these babies are the key.
Steve suggested wearing eye safety goggles, just incase...
Cut 16 x 16 block of lace or tulle and approximately 3 feet of lace ribbon.
Place Jar in middle of lace block.
Gather lace around jar.
Secure temporarily with a rubber band.
Tie ribbon around lace, and remove rubber band. pull lace tightly up and to the sides...it will look like angle wings. embellish with scraps and odds and ends of jewelry or trinkets of any type.
Fill 1/4 of the way with salt, add a tea light candle and light.
